Pilates is an exercise system that is designed to develop strength and flexibility, tone the body, correct postural imbalances and create ease of movement.
“A body free from nervous tension and fatigue is the ideal shelter provided by nature for housing a well balanced mind, fully capable of successfully meeting all the complex problems of modern living.” Joseph H. Pilates
Pilates is known to relieve back pain, as well as other aches and pains throughout the body. The functional movements practiced in Pilates help you to perform other activities, whether work or play, by teaching proper muscle recruitment. This means higher degree of function at work and in sports, less fatigue, faster recuperation, and less incidence of injury. Pilates is a great exercise option suitable for everyone from dancers and athletes to “desk jockies” and stay at home moms.

“I started doing Pilates at Fuerza with hope of healing a lower back injury and strengthening my core so that it wouldn’t happen again. Now, just six months later, I am not only pain- free and stronger, but also longer and leaner. My body is returning to my pre-pregnancy shape (something I had almost given up on after two years).”
“As an avid sportsman, I’ve been through several injuries, most recently I tore my PCL in my right knee playing hockey. Simple tasks like walking up and down stairs was painful and I had to grab the hand rail to relieve my knee. A friend recommended I try Fuerza to stretch and strengthen my knees. The results have been far and beyond what I ever expected. Not only am I back on the tennis court, back to snowboarding and surfing – friends are asking me, “What have you been doing!!”.”

“A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion.” Joseph Pilates
